Commentary: AAP wins Delhi
The Aam Aadmi Party has retained the Indian state of Delhi, which it wristed from the Congress nearly five years back.
The party has wristed at least 62 of the total 70 seats in the state. Anyway, its vote share has reduced slightly from the mark of 54.2 per cent to the mark of 53.6 per cent.
Unsurprisingly, the BJP has emerged as the second largest party in the state. This time, it has secured around eight seats – it has gained at least five more than what it wristed last time.
Not only has it improved its total number of seats, but also it has increased its vote per cent to around 38.51 per cent.
The Congress is the biggest looser this time. Its vote per cent has come down below the mark of five per cent. It is felt as if the people of Delhi have completely ditched the party which was once the only powerful party in the state.
The election result has a message. It offers an effective strategy. What has worked in favour of the AAP is its strategy to avoid the communal rhetoric of the saffron camp and concentrate solely on its achievements during the campaign.
